Apple and Cinnamon go together like nothing else. Apple and Cinnamon Muffins are a great way to make your house smell deliciously spicy and are a quick way to use up a few apples.

Quick to whip up, basically combine the dry ingredients, wet ingredients, then combine together and stir through the apple cubes.

Baking initially on a higher temperature to get the muffin dome, and then lower the temp after 5 minutes for the remainer of the cooking time.

Serve with Salted Caramel sauce- or simply on their own.
